Any girls making moves this year or do you think it's all set?

I think girls stay put. Unless there is a major issue, it's too risky for most to jump ship in the last 12 months before recruiting opens up.

Risky. Last summer/fall was the time to move. Unless of course you are physically moving or there is MAJOR issue.

All kinds of movement at the top in Baltimore. TLC top player moving to M&D, Skywalker open tryouts and open recruiting for new players, other programs also recruiting players.

I understand movement, not active cherrypicking of players not unhappy with their current team. Why not just develop your own players?

Because they dont have the innate talent. Either you've got it or you dont. Win at all costs is the team mentality

Girls are choosing to move on their own. There is no recruiting taking place. As I understand it, M&D held 2021 tryouts by invitation only and SW always holds tryouts for their rising 10th grade teams. This is the last chance girls have to move before all of these teams lock for the remainder of High School.

TLC lost players but the remaining players will get significantly more playing time when it matters most. They will not be top tier but they are well coached and will be competitive. The grass is always greener...

Which team for the TLC top player?

We had a girl leave and go to another, more winning, team. I say let them have them. The parents, all they did was grouse about the lack of wins. And openly mock coaching decisions. Meanwhile this girl will ride pine.
Meanwhile our strong girls are already "being seen" by the right coaches for their level.
People on here will talk about how if you are good enough, you will get the exposure you deserve. So true!

I can tell you why some girls have moved from "Club ABC".
Its obvious that our team is lacking skill in "the draw".
We lose games because we can never get the ball at the draw, for example.
This skill/training is never offered to our team/middies at any practice except the initial fall practice and the initial spring practice.
Just as if its good enough to appease everyone, and then it falls off because the club directors head is no longer in the game because his kids have grown and flown the program.
This is how clubs fail. And also let your teams head spin while the other clubs have some kind of winter program or league.

Are you implying that M&D/SW lack talent? Have those teams lost 10 games between them in the last 3 years? Girls chose to investigate other opportunities. In this case the strong likely get stronger. TLC will still be a competitive, well-coached team with more playing opportunities for the girls on the team.

Only 10 games in three years? Combined they were 1-5 against YJ just this past summer season alone. Have they not played each other for losses as well? Etc.... Both great teams, and yes loaded with talent, among the very top teams in the nation, but you must be on the outside looking in.

I completely disagree. Yes there is risk, but it depends. Our daughter switched from 1 club in her 9th grade year (looks from a few D2/D3 programs) to another program in 10th grade and had 11 D1 offers in the fall.

It really comes down to coaching, club philosophy, and most important team chemistry. Mind you, this was a “B” team to “B” team move, but “A” teams are just the same.

I obviously don't know you or your daughter, but more looks as a 10th grader could have just been that she was a year older - schools filled their classes of 12th and then 11th graders, and moved onto 10th. Or, based on your statement that she was on a B team, maybe the schools were turned down by their A team targets and moved on. I wouldn't necessarily put it all on a club change - sounds like a normal progression.

if you play on a B team many directors will push their A players ahead of you.
